Olympic News & Yep, Still Need Feminism . . . .

In case you're doing that dopeassed thing where you say "quit being a stupid politically correct bitch", try flipping it.

You gonna take the same attitude if a major news entity runs a headline like

"Olympian Corey Cogdell's Hubbins Makes Spectacular Play"?

The Tribune could've spotlighted the local connection to Cogdell and still managed to at the very least mention her name and athletic status pretty easily.

"Olympian Corey Cogdell-Unrein Wins Second Bronze; Chicago Bears Lineman Mitch Unrein Proud"
It wouldn't be such a deal if it weren't for the fact that it does mirror an attitude that is still ridiculously prevalent, that women are still often seen as extensions of their husbands, and all the garbage that goes along with that. If you're still blowing complaining about it off as needless, paranoid, overreactionary politically correct RadFeminazi ass kissing, go read the comments sections of a handful of the articles covering it. If we don't really have a problem with some seriously screwbared attitudes toward equality, why do (alleged) people, both male and female, feel the need to get craptastically nasty over the idea that a chick should get to be mentioned by name for her own accomplishments?
